‘US may issue Iran sanctions waivers’

Iranian First Vice President Es'haq Jahangiri

"Make no mistake about it, we are determined to convince the Iranian leadership that this malign behavior won't be rewarded and that the economic situation in their country will not be permitted to be rectified until such time as they become a more normal nation", he said.

This is especially true because the U.S. never really had much justification for withdrawing from the nuclear deal in the first place, beyond President Trump personally having problems with it. Pompeo's primary ammunition in the talks will be assurances that other nations, mostly Saudi Arabia, will replace Iran's oil exports on the market.

China and India alone imported around 1.4 million bpd of Iranian oil each, Shana added.

Iran has used embassies as cover to plot terrorist attacks, the US State Department said on Wednesday, and all countries should carefully examine staff at Iranian diplomatic missions.

The newspaper also pointed out that US President Donald Trump recently asked Saudi Arabia to pump at least 2 million more barrels a day, but received a reply that stopped short of a commitment to do so.

Washington has threatened the countries potentially maintaining business with Iran despite the US's bans with "secondary sanctions".

Iran is the third largest crude oil supplier after Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

The secretary of State's comments came as the US steps up pressure on Iran after President TrumpDonald John TrumpMcConnell to meet with Trump's Supreme Court pick Tuesday Kavanaugh offers lengthy judicial record ahead of bitter confirmation fight Hundreds protest Kavanaugh's nomination outside Supreme Court MORE's announcement in May that he would withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran, which sought to curb Iran's nuclear ambitions in exchange for sanctions relief.

Speaking at a seminar on global diplomacy and bilateral ties with India, Rahaghi said that Chabahar broadens trade opportunities between India, Iran, Afghanistan and more Central Asian countries.

This reaction from Iran comes as a response to the U.S. policy which called out countries to start reducing the import of oil from Iran and bring it to zero by 4 November. Three others are headed for undisclosed ports on India's west coast from the US Gulf Coast.

Sources told Reuters last month that private refiners Nayara Energy and Reliance Industries Ltd plan to halt Iranian oil imports.

A senior Iranian diplomat has warned India that Tehran will end "special privileges" for New Delhi if it attempts to replace Iranian crude with supplies from Saudi Arabia, Russia and the United States, PTI reported.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is reportedly set to meet with senior British, French and German officials on the sidelines of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in an attempt to persuade them to join Washington in pressuring Iran.

June's 228,000 bpd of US exports to India are more than double the previous export record of 98,000 bpd last September, according to US Energy Information Administration data.
